Is 2500 points going to be the new North American Tournament Standard for Fantasy Battles?

A friend of mine wanted to know if I would be willing to play in the North American Warhammer Tournament Round 1. So I Went to read up on the rules for playing and to my surprise the points limit is 2500 points. Then another friend called me today and told me he was playing in a fantasy battles tournament in January and the points limit for it is also 2500.

So I was just wondering if you anyone knows is this going to be the new Tournament standard for Fantasy Battles. I have been looking on the web but have not found any info as to if this will be the new standard.

What do you think of a 2500 point standard for tournaments?
If this is going to be the new standard what changes if any do you plan on doing for any of your lists?
Is this really going to effect your army that much?

For my Dwarfs I just added a th hero and a unit of Thunderers to meet the points. I haven't really looked at what to do for my Tomb Kings yet.

Anyway I just wanted to know if any one out there knows if this is the new standard and if it is get your thoughts on it.

I've heard rumors that the new pt total for WHFB was going to be 2,500. Personally I am fine with that as it allows for more characters and blocks of troops.

The latest European Team Championships had hard core composition rules allowing some armies (Ogres was one) to take 2500pts vs. others 2250. Every army also had severe restrictions on special and rare choices etc.

Not sure if 2500 is going to be standard outside US as I havent seen any moves that way - but if it does change I expect to see composition rules tightened as well.
